Editorial Reviews

Review

"Like a master chef in the kitchen, Welfonder knows all the best ingredients to use in making the perfect highland romance, and whips that together in Bride for a Knight. Fans won't want to pass up Bride for a Knight. 4 1/2 Roses"—A Romance Review

"Welfonder's careful scholarship and attention to detail vividly re-create the lusty, brawling days of medieval Scotland with larger-than-life chivalrous heroes and dainty but spirited maidens."—Booklist, starred review, on ONLY FOR A KNIGHT

"Historical romance lovers will definitely enjoy life in Scotland years ago and meeting people who epitomize the love of their land in their lives."—Romance Reviews Today on UNTIL THE KNIGHT COMES

"Welfonder again gives readers a true sense of time and place and characters to enjoy. The mix of romance and mystery is well-done, and the surprise ending is a nice treat."—Romance Reviews Today on BRIDE FOR A KNIGHT

About the Author

Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a Scotophile whose burning wish to make frequent trips to the land of her dreams led her to a twenty-year career with the airlines.

Now a full-time writer, she's quick to admit that she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. She makes annual visits to Scotland, insisting they are a necessity, as each trip gives her inspiration for new books.

Proud of her own Hebridean ancestry, she belongs to two clan societies: the MacFie Clan Society and the Clan MacAlpine Society. In addition to Scotland, her greatest passions are medieval history, the paranormal, and dogs. She never watches television, loves haggis, and writes at a 450-year-old desk that once stood in a Bavarian castle.

Sue-Ellen is married and currently resides with her husband and Jack Russell terrier in Florida.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Author Sue-Ellen Wellfonder made frequent trips to the land of her dreams due to her twenty year career with the airlines. Bi-lingual, she flew international all those years, working her flights as foreign language speaker. Her flying career allowed her to see the world, but it was always to Scotland that she returned. Now a full-time writer, she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. Proud of her own Hebridean ancestry, she belongs to two clan societies: the MacFie Clan Society and the Clan MacAlpine Society. Other titles include: Master of the Highlands , Knight in My Bed, Bride of the Beast, Only for a Night, Wedding for a Knight, Until the Night Comes, and Devil in a Kilt. She is married and currently resides with her husband in Florida .

Lady Gelis MacKenzie yearns for love, the everlasting kind. Her father, hesitant to all suitors, is determined to keep her close and at home. Until a long-standing debt is called upon to be collected, and her father's honor must obey it. Gelis has already had a vision of her suitor, a darkly seductive man, with wounds that run deep. When she finally meets her betrothed and learns of his family's curse that has haunted them for generations, she determines that curses are not to be believed. With two previous wives in the ground, Ronan MacRuari, known also as the Raven, weds Gelis only to satisfy his clan. He knows that loving her could unleash the curse and put her in mortal danger. But as he comes to know her, and their passionate desires flare, he begins to wonder if Gelis isn't the key to lifting the curse that has plagued them. Determined to protect her at all costs, he'll fight the dangerous forces that threaten her, even if it means closing off his heart to what it truly wants.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By K. McGee VINE VOICE on December 15, 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There just weren't any real stand out characters in this book for me. The two main characters are poorly fleshed out (as is the story line). I didn't feel I knew them at all and therefore, I couldn't care for them either. No being ga-ga for the hero, no rooting for the heroine, no laugh out loud moments or tugging at your heart-strings. It's just not there.

Sometimes it's the title of the book that makes you want to buy but this title is misleading in that the hero never seduces the heroine, he doesn't have to because there's no real conflict of any consequence between them. In fact you will be 300+ pages into this 364 page story before the hero actually beds his "bride". If I remember correctly there are about 3 kisses, the bedding and about half another intimate scene and that's all you get. I wouldn't have minded at all at the lack of "steamy moments" if there had been a better build up of sexual tension but that was missing for me.

There is the one scene at the very end of the book that was semi-exciting when the hero confronts his foe(s) but that doesn't save the story, at least for me.

This author consistently gets good reviews and has deserved them but unfortunately, I didn't feel this book stood up well to her past efforts.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on March 8, 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Following the death of his second wife Ronan "The Raven" MacRuari vows no more marriages. He fears for the life of any future bride at his home Castle Dare as he believes he is either paranormally cursed or haunted by an unknown mortal adversary with access to his home; though he leans towards the supernatural because the natural explanation means a friend or family member has been killing his wives.

However, the twice widower is placed in a quandary when he must marry a MacKenzie to pay off a family debt to the clan. Laird MacKenzie sends a euphoric Lady Gelis to be The Raven's third bride. She has the gift of sight and has seen her intended in a vision. She prepares to bring sunshine into his heart while confronting the dark forces of evil who need her dead in order to possess the Raven Stone that MacRuari owns.

SEDUCING A SCOTTISH BRIDE is a great paranormal historical romance starring two caring individuals whose love puts them at odds with each other. He would rather be celibate than place his Lady Gelis in harm; she would rather battle the entire forces of hell than give up her love. Fans will read this in one delightful sitting so set aside the time.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have enjoyed many of Sue-Ellen's previous Scottish Romances but after trying to read though the first 300 boring pages I gave up looking for any romance in this book. The "plot" was centered around visions, curses, second sight, demons, magic, etc. etc. The two main characters had no warmth, personality, vitality or depth.

As the MacKenzie family tale continues, we find the Black Stags youngest daughter Gelis with visions of a Raven. She is unhappy and ready to find love and adventure when her father announces that she will be married to Ronan MacRuari, a cursed young man who her fathers must allow her to marry to honor a debt. Will Gelis find the love and adventure she longs for or will she fall victim to the same fates as his last two wives? I found the story interesting and the premise something different from many of the highland romances. It was filled with lots of folklore and intrigue with some interesting twists. There were a couple of story lines that could have been a little more developed but other than that overall it was a good story. I would recommend the book to others.

Summary:

Gelis MacKenzie is one of the most desirable heiresses in all the Western Highlands. She is the youngest and much adored daughter of the indomitable Black Stag of Kintail, Duncan MacKenzie, who was the hero of Welfonder's novel DEVIL IN A KILT. Unfortunately, Gelis has been branded unmarriageable, but not for lack of masculine interest. No matter how lofty the ancestry, how deep the purse, or how mighty the sword arm, nary a one of her suitors is good enough for her father. Although he loves Gelis fiercely and knows he must someday see her settled and wed, Duncan isn't quite ready to let her go.

But now Duncan has received an offer for Gelis's hand in marriage that he is honor-bound to accept-and it comes from the worst possible quarter. The suitor, Ronan MacRuari of Castle Dare, is the last man Duncan MacKenzie would wish for a son-in-law. Known as the Raven, Ronan is the scion of a dark clan that has been marked by a deadly curse.
